Monte Lin

Associate Editor

Monte Lin (he/him) has over six years of experience as a freelance editor for tabletop roleplaying games and speculative fiction. His work includes Magpie Games’ hit Avatar: Legends, the game based on the Avatar: The Last Airbender series, and Afterlife: Fated Souls, the surreal horror fantasy game from Angry Hamster Publishing. He has a copyediting certificate from UC Berkeley Extension and is currently managing editor for the Hugo Award–winning Uncanny Magazine. 

As a short story writer, he has work in Cossmass InfinitiesCast of Wonders, Flame Tree Press anthologies, and other magazines, and his Ignyte-nominated nonfiction can be found at Strange Horizons. He attended the Clarion West summer workshop in 2019 and the Tin House YA workshop in 2022. 

 His years living in dry California did not prepare him for the overcast downpour of Oregon. Luckily, Monte enjoys indoor hobbies, such as losing at board games and slowly reducing his to-read pile.
